Sample Section 2
Heading Advice to a Course
After selecting a VOR course with the OBS knob, the CDI needle deflects to show heading advice
to intercept the course. If you turn the airplane to a heading on the same side as the deflected CDI
needle, the aircraft will move toward the desired course.



In this example, the CDI needle indicates that heading generally north will take the aircraft to the selected outbound course.




In this example, the CDI needle indicates that heading northeast will take the aircraft to the selected inbound course.
Tips and Tricks

SAME SIDE SAFE

Headings that are on the SAME SIDE as the needle will SAFELY return you to the selected course.
Avoid thinking of the needle deflection in terms of left and right, or you can get into trouble. Instead, determine a heading to get you back on course, then turn toward that heading
